A wonderful antique Georgian English, solid 9 carat gold mourning locket ring. Beautifully made, with some of the finest snake-enamelled, lyre-shaped shoulders I've ever seen, it has a ribbed band and its head is set with a row of seed pearls around a tiny rounded locket compartment, containing a woven blonde hair memento - easily changed out if desired. The back of the head is ornately hand engraved with a mourning dedication (partly obscured) dating it to the early 1800's. It's in very good, fully wearable condition, with a very old repair/strengthening to the back of one shoulder and one or two replaced pearls.
It weighs 4.7 grams, its head measures 15 x 13 mm and its ring size is 7 ¼ US / O UK - not resizeable. What's more, I offer layaway deals so there's no need to let any of my listings slip through your fingers - just ask!
